Great Holiday Gifts for the Hunter or Shooter in your Life
holiday shooters gift guide. With the holiday season quickly approaching, many of us are starting to think about Christmas shopping. If you have a gun enthusiast as a friend or family member, you can rest assured that there is always something needed in their shooting kit.
Whether it’s your husband, wife, son, or best friend, it can be hard to figure out what types of presents gun owners might enjoy. A good starting point is assessing exactly what type of shooter you are shopping for. Importantly, hunters generally have different needs in their shooting kits than target shooters.
Once you have a better idea of where to start shopping, a company like SSP Firearms will help you make great Christmas gift choices. Our team members will be happy to answer any questions you might have about guns and related products.
If you are looking for suggestions, here are some of the best shooting holiday shooters gift guide items:
High Visibility Targets
Price range: $10-$30
No matter how experienced a shooter you are shopping for, they need to practice keeping their skills sharp. High visibility Splatterburst Targets are an affordable gift option with plenty of use throughout the year. While most shooting ranges sell targets, you can help a target shooter or hunter save big by adding targets to their kit.
Spatterburst Targets feature a bright green background that is exposed when struck by a bullet. When juxtaposed against the black paint, it is very easy to track accuracy when shooting high-visibility targets. Even better, Spatterburst Targets come with black patches for bullet holes that greatly extend the life of each target.
Shooting Range Gift Cards
Price range: $20+
One of the best ways to treat the gun enthusiast in your life is a gift card for a local shooting range. While you might not know exactly what types of tools they need for their gun kit, a gift card is a surefire crowd-pleaser. Not only can a gift card be used to cover sessions at the range, but it can also be used to purchase gear at gift shops.
Depending on the shooting range in question, a gift card might also be used for specialized training. Whether they are a hunter or target shooter, extra instructions can go a long way in progressing someone’s skills. To make it count, you should spend at least $20 on a gift card.
The Real Avid Pistol Tool is an extremely popular item among target shooters and other gun hobbyists. Whether someone’s pistol needs to be repaired at the shooting range or in the field, this tool will get the job done. In fact, this multi-tool is used for many important jobs, including “mounting accessories, field disassembly, adjusting laser sights and changing side grips.”
Known as a “19-in-1” tool, the Real Avid Pistol Tool has a ton of handy features, including a knife, file, screwdriver, pick, and wrench. This incredible and handy gift will always keep pistols working in top shape.

Whether your loved one is a moose hunter going deep into the Alaskan bush or a target shooter in a local league, they have to keep their gear organized. Due to the high craftsmanship and weight of most parts and tools, cheap containers and baggies simply don’t work for gun kits.
Firearms accessories manufacturer Magpul came up with DAKA pouches to keep people’s pistol and rifle kits organized and functional. DAKA organizational pouches are extremely durable and come in a variety of sizes. They are also waterproof and available in different colors such as clear and black.
Shooting Practice App
Like anywhere else in the world today, they are new technologies that can help improve people’s accuracy at the range. The MantisX shooting app attaches to firearms and can be used with “both live and dry fire training.” Even if your loved one can’t make it to the shooting range, they can still practice at home with this incredible app.
The MantisX clips directly to a firearm and uses sensors to track accuracy. In live mode, shooters get a ton of valuable information on performance, including “direction & magnitude” as well as “shot-by-shot analysis.” With Mantis Laser Academy, a laser is added to a firearm so people can practice shooting and improve accuracy at home without live bullets.
Trail Camera Card Reader
While this gift idea is only for hunters, it is so cool we had to add it to the list. If you have an active hunter in your family, they almost certainly use trail cameras to keep tabs on their favorite spots in the woods. With the BoneView Memory Card Reader, they can monitor game cameras without having to leave the field.
This affordable gift allows hunters to plug memory cards into their cell phones to check game activity. Even better, BoneView makes models for both Androids and iPhones. So, the hunter in your family will always have the latest info on game activity in their favorite locations.
Gun Cleaning Kit
Price: $20 to $100
The last item in our holiday shooters gift guide is a cleaning kit. All guns need to be cleaned to remain safe and functional. What better way to support someone’s hobby as a target shooter or hunter than a high-quality gun cleaning kit? There is a wide variety of cleaning kits and price ranges.
Depending on what guns you are looking to clean, a wide variety of tools can be used. Friends and family can keep their guns working in top shape with bronze brushes, cotton swabs, and brass jags.
Moreover, the kits come in a convenient and easy-to-carry case.
